SIMATIC WinCC RT Professional: The Integrated Solution for Visualization and Control
ICS-CERT also provides a section for control systems security recommended practices on the ICS-CERT web page. Several recommended practices are available for reading and download, including Improving Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity with Defense-in-Depth Strategies.
After the download, the new project should appear in the project list in SIMATIC Runtime Manager. This tool is used to start and stop projects on the Runtime Server and can also be used to access various administrative settings, including auto-starting a particular project after a power-cycle.

Once the device is displayed in the list of target devices, select it. Click the Load button at the bottom of the pop-up. If asked to confirm adding an IP address in the subnet, confirm and continue. Correct any errors and click the Load button at the bottom of the new pop-up. Click the Finish button when the download is complete.
PLCs come with firmware loaded. Just like any software, different versions of firmware have different features. If you prefer to load the PLC with a specific version of the firmware, Siemens memory cards can be configured to do that. Download the firmware to the PLC before downloading the PLC program.
In certain cases, even when the PLC and HMI program is successfully downloaded, if the IP addresses of the devices are not in the same network they will not communicate with each other. Therefore it is important to ensure that the devices IP addresses are in the same subnet.
This tutorial covered how to download your programs to a Siemens PLC and HMI, using TIA Portal, a Siemens memory card and a USB. We also covered the steps you need to take in order to change the IP addresses of your PLC and HMI from the HMI.
The visualization is the showcase of your application. But how to create a powerful and modern visualization with a poor budget? Our S7-visualization tool VisuStage solves this problem. And it offers lots of simple to configure functions like function- and trend graph viewers, alarm- and event viewers, recipe- and usermanagement systems with one language in the free lean version. Unlimited languages are possible in licensed version. The integrated simulation tool is able to simulate visualization together with the S7-program via Siemens S7-PLCSIM. For users of the Siemens-tool WinCCflex there is nearly no differences in handling the S7-visualization program. And for CPU-T devices with a VNC-Server integrated for an 1:1 controlling. It works for free at the Siemens-sm@rt client. The new auto-synchronizing of S7-variables with existing S7-projects in SimaticManager or TIA-Portal prevents that your visualization- and S7-protects drift apart.
